Marsha Marie Simmons Pastuch

December 14, 1954 - May 13, 2020

Marsha Pastuch passed peacefully on the evening of May 13, 2020 surrounded by her children, grandchildren, sisters and brother. Marsha bravely fought a short battle with heart disease. Marsha suffered a medical emergency while visiting her son and family Mother's Day Weekend. She then received excellent care at BSW in College Station and participated in her care choices to the very last minute. She made sure she had her closest family members there to say their final goodbyes.

Born in Houston, Texas, she moved to Fresno, Texas as a little girl where she resided the rest of her days. Marsha had many titles including mother, sister, friend and grandmother. Marsha was a mother to many but had only one son by birth which was her world. She was blessed with three grandchildren which she never missed a minute of. She was at every birth, recital, game, school event, birthday, holiday and more.

Marsha spent the majority of her career as an Activity Director at various assisted living and nursing homes in Pearland, Texas and Alvin, Texas and was the very best at her job with the elderly residents. She cared for each one as if they were family and made sure each day of their stay was fun and eventful and that they were well taken care of.

While on this earth, some of her favorite pastimes were crafting, decorating, sewing, crocheting, hanging out with her many friends and spending as much time as possible with her grandchildren and children.

Marsha is survived by her son, Michael John Pastuch and daughter-in-love, Sonya Pastuch and grandchildren Jacob Michael Pastuch, Sophie Lynn Pastuch and Gracie Jo Pastuch of Brenham, Texas; Sisters, Sherry Plourde of Alvin, Texas, Wanda Stokes and husband Royce of Iowa Colony, Texas, Deborah Thoede and husband Russell of Houston, Texas; and brother John Allen Simmons, Jr. of Columbus, Texas.

She joins her mother, Delores M Schuette Simmons and father John Allen Simmons, Sr. in heaven and we are certain she is now dancing for Jesus.

The family has entrusted Henneke Funeral Home in Columbus, Texas with her arrangements. Due to Covid-19, a family graveside only service will be held on Monday, May 18, 2020 at 2pm. Once able, we plan to celebrate Marsha's life with all of her friends and family.

Marsha will be laid to rest with her parents in Columbus, Texas as she wished.
